Betfair has established itself as a bookmaking giant over the years, and they’re one of the go-to bookies to head to for the 2022 Grand National, which is set to take place on Saturday 9th April 2022.

We’ll take you through a review of Betfair’s Grand National coverage, and see what they have to offer their customers ahead of the main event at Aintree.

Betfair Betting Offers

Betfair has a great sign-up offer that new customers can look forward to using on the 2022 Grand National. They’re offering their new customers £10 in free bets when they deposit and wager funds of £10 on their sportsbook.

This free bet could then be used on the 2022 Grand National if you want to, as it’s one of the biggest races in the horse racing calendar. This offer is only valid for one day, and expires late on Saturday 9th April 2022.

How to claim Betfair’s Welcome Offer

To sign up with Betfair and to claim their welcome offer is relatively simple. Below, we’ve provided you with step-by-step instructions on how to claim Betfair’s welcome offer.

  • Click here to be directed to Betfair’s site.
  • Click the ‘Join Now’ button, which is coloured yellow, and this will take you to a registration form.
  • Fill out your personal information, including your name, date of birth, address, and contact preferences.
  • Set your password, security question, and deposit limit.

Best Odds Guaranteed (BOG)

Best Odds Guaranteed remains one of the most popular promotions when it comes to horse racing bets, and it’s clear to see why. BOG gives punters the best possible odds on their horse racing selections on the day of the race being scheduled to run. Regardless of whether the odds of your chosen horse shorten or drift, the BOG promotion will have you covered on Betfair. An example of the BOG promotion being in place for the 2022 Grand National can be found below.

  • Delta Work wins the 2022 Grand National, and the punter wagered funds at 8/1, but the horse’s SP was 6/1, you’ll still be paid out at the higher odds of 8/1.
  • Delta Work wins the 2022 Grand National, and the punter wagered funds at 8/1, but the horse’s SP was 10/1, you’d be paid out at the SP which is the higher odds.

It’s worth noting that the Best Odds Guaranteed promotion is available from 8 am on the day of the race, which will remain the case for the 2022 Grand National.

Odds Boosts

Odds boosts are another promotion that Betfair offers their punters on horse racing meetings in the UK & Ireland. It’s unclear as to which horses might have their odds boosted by Betfair in the lead-up to the 2022 Grand National, but it’s well worth keeping an eye on their site for this promotion in the days before the event is set to take place. Odds boosts are where the odds of a certain horse are heightened to tempt punters into getting behind the horse they’ve boosted odds on.

Extra Places

Extra places are available to be paid out on plenty of meetings in the UK & Ireland throughout the horse racing calendar, and although it’s yet to be confirmed whether this will remain the case for the 2022 Grand National, it certainly wouldn’t come as a surprise to see it remain the same.

Extra places effectively give punters a better chance at being paid out on some winnings on an each-way bet, as Betfair is a bookmaker that pays out on additional places, compared to the standard place betting markets that are paid out by their bookmaking competitors.
